Can't remove track from device ("track is being used")

Hi,

I'm trying to remove sound tracks from a SD-card loaded with music (only) through a Winamp playlist. The error I get says about "The track is being used - it can't be removed". I get this for any track (i.e. I'm not currently playing it). I have no idea what appliation might be using it. Thanks for advice!

Windows 7
Winamp v 5.623 (x86)

Hi Robotec,

If you can list the files in Windows Explorer, there is a utility call "Unlocker" that will let you right-click on a file and force whatever is using it to release it. Then you can delete the unlocked file. Link below, download the version appropriate for your OS (32 or 64 bit).

Nice to see even Major dudes around here

The issue was however resolved. I put my Sherlook glasses on and observed the "lock/unlock" slide-button on the SD-card needed to be turned to "lock" for things to get unlocked.
